Greater Washington DC Area
Manx Society

Failt erriu! Welcome!

Live in the mid-Atlantic region? Have Manx birth or heritage? Just curious or want to learn about our tiny country’s rich Celtic and Viking history; traditions and culture; or art, music, and dancing? You’ve come to the right place!

What’s new for GWAMS?

Stay tuned and follow our Facebook page for details of upcoming events. Many of them now occur on Zoom and we are having fun bringing people on the Island together with not just our DC members but Manxies across the world!

We recently voted to discontinue charging dues and to have more “pop-up” events that appeal to smaller groups of members. If you are organizing a Celtic event, or better still, a Manx one, please contact us.

For guidance on family history research, experts are available at many LDS church Family History Centers across the country.


Contact the Greater Washington D.C. Area Manx Society’s Cultural Secretary Bill Cassidy at or Social Secretary Kearsley Rand at for more information on our activities.
